19 November 2009 – memories of the cabbage soup diet

Unfortunate co sequences from horrible soup

Unfortunate consequences from horrible soup

So far this week I’m on target for my sales, I’ve got one every day and I’ve got a service contract but it feels like the pressure is never off. No sooner have I got a sale then I’m worrying about the next one and, as everyone else except Tom, is getting lots of sales every day I feel like I’m letting the team down. Next week I’m having a one to one with Maddie and I’m a bit worried what she’s going to say. Continue reading

14 September 2009 – another interview disaster

Do I really want to go back to the phones?

Do I really want to go back to the phones?

Another week another pound off. It seems a pound a week is becoming the norm, not that I’m moaning. Eleven stone nine is great. In fact it’s wonderful, two stone four pounds off since I started all this back in January. Thirty two pounds in thirty seven weeks is hardly setting the world on fire but there have been a few blips along the way and I’d probably have done a lot better if I’d not bothered with those silly fad diets I did, the cabbage soup, Atkins. They made me drop lots of pounds at the time but I put them all back on again quick smart. Oh well lessons learned and it is new territory each weigh in at the moment. Continue reading

5 May 2009 – a flying shirt button and the Atkins Diet

Shirt button popping

Shirt button popping

Mac was drinking his coffee this morning when he accidentally inhaled instead of swallowing. This resulted in a massive coughing fit during which one of the buttons on his shirt actually popped off under the strain and flew across the room narrowly missing hitting me in the head. Poor Mac was mortified. In all fairness the shirt was strained to breaking point before the coughing fit so it was almost inevitable that a button would go sooner or later. It’s not only me that all the cakes are catching up with. Continue reading

18 January 2009 – never eating cabbage soup again

Meh

 If I never see another cabbage again it will be too soon!

Today is the last day! I can have unlimited vegetables, cabbage soup and some brown rice. The problem is there is no more cabbage soup. Commando threw it out and forbade me to make any more because it makes the house smell too much. Continue reading

15 January – bananas, spots and stats

Tried and spotty

Tried and spotty

Today I’m allowed up to eight bananas. Yay! I had a banana for breakfast and it was heavenly. I felt a bit better on my way to work today. I was going to walk but then the bus turned up just as I was walking past the stop so I caught it. I’m feeling tired again now though and I’ve got a big spot on my forehead that really hurts. Continue reading

14 January 2009 – farting and craving bananas

So tired

So tired

I slept through the alarm this morning. I’ve never done that before. It’s a good job Commando works nights. He got in, wondered where I was and came to wake me up. The alarm was still going off. He said it frightened him to death, he thought I was dead. I don’t know why I’m so tired, I went to bed really early too. Continue reading
